After a very productive January transfer window, Slaven Bilic’s West Brom are in a good place at the moment. The fans want to see their side win promotion, and with the additions of Kamil Grosicki and Lee Peltier on deadline day, they’re primed to fight for the title.

However, the fans aren’t best pleased as they’ve recently found out the numbers that the pair will be wearing this season. The Polish winger has been given the #13 shirt, whilst the former Cardiff City man will be wearing the #22 shirt.
Peltier’s number doesn’t seem to have rattled anyone, but the Baggies aren’t best pleased to see that their brand new attacking wide man will be wearing the supposedly unlucky 13, a shirt number which is so often found on the backs of substitute goalkeepers.

I would have give Peltier 13 and grosicki 22

The fans are far from delighted with the numbering, but will quickly forget their gripes when the pair get out on the pitch.
